|Oct-24-07|| ||The Chess Express: 9. hxg4 hxg4 10. Ng5 should win easily for white. 10. ... f6 10. Qxg4 fxg5 11. Bxg5 or 10. ... d6 11. Be3 f6 12. dxe5 (d5) Bxe3 13. fxe3 f5 (best) 14. Nf7 Kxf7 15. exd6 and white is winning.|
|Oct-25-07|| ||Resignation Trap: According to Brian Wall on http://www.taom.com/mailman/listinf... , 9.hxg4 hxg4 10.Ng5 g3! 11.fxg3 exd4! 12.Nxf7 dxc3+! is crushing.|

|Oct-26-07|| ||Resignation Trap: <The Chess Express> Brian absolutely >>loves<< to trap unsuspecting opponents with this line, both in tournaments and especially on line (I think it's part of his religion). So if you ever have to face him, try Lee's line and then boldly try 9.hxg4.|
There are good reasons why Kramnik plays 4...Nxe4 instead of 4...Ng4.
|Oct-26-07|| ||WannaBe: Is that Marvin Lee, or Lee Marvin?!|
|Oct-26-07|| ||Resignation Trap: <WannaBe> According to Brian Wall , "Marvin Lee looks nothing like the actor Lee Marvin. Marvin Lee is the biggest Asian dude I've ever seen. Imagine Lorne Greene marrying Hopsing and Hoss on the Ponderosa - their offspring will give you some idea of what Marvin Lee looks like."|
Brian Wall has a new chess book for children titled "How To Play Chess Like An Animal". It is being printed even as we speak.
|Oct-26-07|| ||The Chess Express: A simpler line is 5. d4 exd4 6. Nxd4 Nxd4 7. Qxd4 when white has a nice positional advantage. 6. ... Qh4 can be met with 7. h3 Nge5 (h5?, Nf5) 8. Nc3|
|Nov-20-07|| ||dougrhess: <Resignation Trap:9.hxg4 hxg4 10.Ng5 g3! 11.fxg3 exd4! 12.Nxf7 dxc3+! is crushing.> Where did fxg3 come from?|
|Nov-20-07|| ||Resignation Trap: <dougrhess> This was analysis by Brian Wall and I was simply repeating it. If you click on the link I gave, you may be able to eventually find the source. He has a lot of material.|
|Nov-20-07|| ||goldenbear: Marvin Lee's father is Wellington Lee, an excellent bridge player as well as a former OK chess champion.|
|Nov-21-07|| ||The Chess Express: chess champions are OK ;)|
|Nov-21-07|| ||goldenbear: OK as in Oklahoma. I guess you knew that though.|
|Dec-07-07|| ||DanielBryant: I was at this tournament, and I remember that Lee had only two seconds left when he resigned. Only got 15 moves in in two hours.|
|Jan-30-08|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: the database has two games with 4...Ng4!?!?!?, which must be the Fishing Pole, and they're both wins for Black! No matter how sound or unsound, it's remarkable that we can still find theoretical novelties on the 4th move of an opening as old as the Ruy.|

Here's another one. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Ng5 ;)
|Feb-22-09|| ||deschner: This is another great game from Brian Wall's Fishing Pole Variation of the Berlin Defense of the Ruy Lopez Chess Opening! (Martin)|
|Apr-20-11|| ||Firststep2: It seems White's fatal mistake was 12.Bf4? Look at the following article:|
Anyway, it's a fantastic game by Brian Wall.
|Jun-24-12|| ||King Death: Not your normal Berlin Ruy Lopez for sure, in 50 years of playing through games I never saw 4...Ng4 or heard of the Fishing Pole until this crazy game!|
